Patreon Post Unlocked: Colette (2018) Transitions Through the Belle Epoque

1

Colette (2018) stars Keira Knightley as the famous French author of the Claudine novels, Chéri, and Gigi, among others. She was born Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954), married author/publisher Henry Gauthier-Villars who went by the pen name “Willy,” started writing under his name, then struck out on her own. I’ve been eagerly anticipating this movie just based on how great the costumes looked in the preview, and I’m happy to report that I quite enjoyed the end result!

The film itself is engaging — it goes from Colette age 20 (1893), about to marry Willy, through their separation in 1906 and divorce in 1910.
